Defective circuit breakers can lead to extensive damage, personnel injury, or make an outage more widespread when a fault occurs. They can also trip when they shouldn’t causing expensive downtime.
There is no way to know if a circuit breaker will operate properly under fault or overload conditions unless it is tested.
The Eaton Cutler Hammer 70C1056G52 Functional Test Kit is a handheld battery powered testers capable of testing trip elements for the Digitrip family of Magnum power circuit breaker trip units.
The Digitrip 520 family includes the Digitrip 220+, 520, 520i, 520M, 520Mi, 520MC and 520MCi. In addition they can test the Digitrip1150 family consisting of the Digitrip 1150, 1150i and Digitrip 1150V and 1150Vi by overlaying a nameplate on the tester.
An Auxiliary Power Module is included to provide trip unit power to illuminate the trip units having display LEDs.
The molded case Digitrip 310+ circuit breakers can also be tested with the Eaton Cutler Hammer 70C1056G52.
